Weepinbell Curry Stir-Fry

Weepinbell is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Bellsprout starting at level 21 and evolves into Victreebel when exposed to a Leaf Stone.

Weepinbell is a plant Pokémon with a yellow, bell-shaped body. Above Weepinbell’s circular eyes are three small green spots and a small, brown hook-shaped stem. It has wide, gaping mouth with pink lips. On each side of its body is a large, green leaf. Weepinbell camouflages itself as a plant in the forest whilst awaiting an unwary victim. When its prey draws near it sprays poison powder to immobilize the target before melting it with its internal acids. It oozes a neutralizing fluid that prevents these internal acids from melting its own body. It will also slice its prey too large to consume into pieces with its razor-sharp leaves. Weepinbell live in temperate forests and jungles where it hangs from tree branches by its stem to sleep. If it moves around during sleep, Weepinbell may slip and awaken to find itself on the ground.

Ingredients

1 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Ground Turmeric
1 tsp Garam Masala
0.5 tsp Black Pepper
0.5 tsp Salt
0.5 tsp Ground Cumin
2 tbsp Butter
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp Lime Juice
2 Basa Fillets
2 Pak Choi (leaves separated)
1 Fennel (trimmed and sliced, use leaves for garnishing)
2 Carrots (grated)
1 tbsp Mustard Seeds

As Weepinbell is a Poison/Grass type, I wanted to use vegetables alongside a spicy main. I liked the idea of fish baked in a Tikka marinade and served with fried Pak Choi, Fennel and Carrot for a bit of colour!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mix the ginger, turmeric, garam masala, black pepper, salt and cumin together. Combine with 1 tablespoon of butter and the lime juice to make a paste, adding half a tablespoon of water if necessary.
Step 2
Coat the fish in the paste and place on a baking tray to bake for 15 minutes in the oven.
Step 3
In a wok, melt 1 tbsp butter with the olive oil. Sauté the fennel until lightly browned. Add the mustard seeds and cook until they start to pop. Then add the carrot and stir fry for a few minutes.
Step 4
Add the pak choi to the wok for a few minutes and season with some extra salt and pepper until they have wilted. Plate up the vegetables and place the baked fish on top. Garnish with any fennel leaves leftover and a splash of extra lime juice.
